24th July 2019

James Davies writes for Lexis PSL on the implications of the case Viagogo AG v Competition and Markets Authority [2019] EWHC 1706 (Ch).

 

Summary

"Commercial analysis: The case arose in the specific context of a consent order settling proceedings brought by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). It provides a useful illustration of the issues which can arise in the context of drafting agreements and consent orders dealing with the provision of information to consumers. It also provides assistance and direction for those seeking to reach agreements with regulators such as the CMA as to the provision of consumer information through websites. In the specific field of secondary ticketing it also provides a useful indication as to what the CMA will look for in terms of the provision of information on the specific areas of guarantees and face value information."
